Sometimes when life gets especially hard, you just have to pray, cry it out a bit, read the book of Job(because that always puts things in perspective), and think about the things that make you happy.
These are a few of my favorite things(that make me happy):
My family, of course!
(taken by our family photographer)
I love the way my Grasshopper laughs so hard at his own jokes before finishing that we don't even know what the joke was.
I love the way my shy Firefly, every once in awhile, forgets that others are watching and really lets his personality loose.
I love the way my little Bumblebee crinkles up his nose, and snorts when he's especially happy.
I just love my husband, period. He's worked so hard this past month trying to get our home fixed. It seems as though if there was a problem to happen, it happened, though I know it could have been worse. He's kept moving forward!
This song. It always makes me want to dance around like a child.
Our new "butcher block" counter top that my handyman hubby made. I'm pretty proud! (I'll plan for a tour of our little home once flooring and touch-ups are finished.)
Peach popsicles(in the only brand I'll eat)!
The boys wanting to play "hide and stink".
(Sink is also "stink". At the doctor's office, Grasshopper proclaimed, "You have a stink!" After a little bafflement/amusement from the doctor, I explained he couldn't pronounce that word "sink" correctly.) Jonathan and I always laugh at the mispronunciation, though.
The MOMENT the power comes back on after an outage.
Winning a book I REALLY want to read.
A book I've REALLY wanted to read finally arriving at my library. (The Golem and the Jinni , I'll see you shortly! All 800+ pages of you. :O)
Loving Your Husband by Patsy Loden((amazing (work)book, y'all!))
Deactivating Facebook(cutting those strings is always freeing!)
Watching the little pair of Cardinals steal dog/cat food off the porch together. (the adventures of married life as a bird=fun times)
The rare quiet time in the morning when I can hear nothing but the birds singing.
What makes you happy?
